Dr Disrespect seems to already have his gripes with Valorant despite it only being in beta. In particular, the streamer took aim at the title’s movement mechanics, roasting them with a hilarious IRL parody.

The two-time blockbuster video game champion is never one to shy away from sharing his opinion on any new release. Settling into the record-setting first day of Valorant’s beta, the streaming sensation already has one major gripe.

Rather than simply expressing his concerns, Doc instead decided to jump around in a hilarious IRL parody to get his point across.

Valorant’s closed beta only just kicked off on April 7 and Dr Disrespect has already found his first major gripe.

Roughly 14 hours into the beta of Riot’s highly-anticipated FPS title, Dr Disrespect appeared to reach his breaking point while failing to hit a shot with the Operator sniper.

“You’ve gotta sit like a f***ing statue to shoot this f***ing weapon,” he yelled after being gunned down by an opposing Phoenix.

Relocating to his custom locker room, Doc jumped around like a maniac to vent his frustrations. He continued by yelling everyone in the game is “bunny hopping,” and that “you can’t even fire the sniper.”

With his trusty pocket knife equipped, he imitated Valorant’s characters as though no one walked. Instead, he said, everyone in the game is jumping at all times.

His team still managed to win the round decisively too, despite his comedic outburst.

“Calm down Doc,” he joked at the beginning of the next round. “We’re having a good time. We’re up 10-2. I’m blowing everyone else out of the water with my K/D ratio.”

Taking a moment to reflect on the fiery parody, he played into the character, joking that Dr Disrespect has “some psychological problems” when it comes to competitive games like Valorant.

That wasn’t the only incident that got him out of his chair during the day one Valorant beta stream however. Doc also imitated the game’s movement in a different way after being one tapped by an opposing Raze.

“I mean, strafing, moving, the animation of the character…I…” he cut off before transitioning back to the locker room once again.

This time, instead of bunny hopping, Dr Disrespect roasted the game’s strafing animation. Holding his hands out like a weapon while his legs looked like those of a classic marionette, he slid across the ‘locker room’ floor.

After streaming live for over 14 hours on the very first day of Valorant’s beta, it’s clear that Doc didn’t want to miss out on the record-shattering hype.

While it’s still early days yet, and he certainly has his gripes about the game’s movement on day one, it looks like Dr Disrespect will be sinking his teeth into the new release for quite some time — despite the game’s “stupid” mechanics.

YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie Kjellberg defended Elon Musk during his October 18 upload. The Swedish star hit out at those getting upset over the Tesla CEO’s viral meme about changing the price of the Model S.

The one thing PewDiePie and Elon Musk have in common is their love of memes. The YouTube star even had the tech giant host an episode of his popular Meme Review show back in 2019 that has over 26 million views.

The Tesla CEO faced backlash from critics in October after tweeting that the Model S price was being changed to $69,420. The YouTuber defended the billionaire during his latest upload, and argued that people can’t take a joke.

PewDiePie defends Elon Musk’s Model S meme

During his October 18 episode of Last Week I Asked You, Pewds addressed the criticism Elon Musk received from some over a tweet he made on October 14 about the Model S price change.

“I saw some people being so butthurt over this. It’s like, dude, it’s just a joke. I’m sure Elon knows it’s ironic,” he said, before he jokingly imitated critics in a baby voice. “So childish, he’s like a 12-year old! … Yeah, that’s the joke! Ever hear of fun?”

The creator then applauded the CEO for being attuned to meme culture: “You just want another overweight, gray-haired, boomer billionaire? I don’t. I think we have enough of that!”

The tweet that PewDiePie was referencing was made on October 14 when Musk posted, “The gauntlet has been thrown down! The prophecy will be fulfilled. Model S price changes to $69,420 tonight!”

The joke exploded on the social media platform, instantly going viral with over 330k likes and 35k retweets. While many found the meme to be hilarious, some critics hit out at the CEO for being irresponsible with the company’s prices.

This isn’t the only time PewDiePie has defended Elon. In past uploads, the 30-year-old has admitted to viewers that he’s admired the tech CEO for his innovations while still being wired into internet culture.

With Kjellberg being so fond of the tech giant, maybe the Tesla owner will someday return as a guest host on Meme Review. Maybe the Swede could also convince the billionaire to show up for a round of Among Us – now that would be entertainment gold.
